|In countries where the Oehler system is popular are there any

|(probably pitched in C) for children starting out. I have seen what I

I'm wondering if this is a coincidence or if this is what you saw, but
Buffet makes a plastic Eb Boehm System Clarinet for young children called
"Kinder Clarinet". It is held in a backpack case out of foam and
nylon/polyester that the child can carry like a backpack.
